  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The goal of this study is to evaluate the expressions of these markers in thyroid tumors of the full spectrum of differentiation, with special emphasis on anaplastic carcinomas.
  • A total of 94 cases of thyroid neoplasms were studied: 17 papillary carcinomas, 18 follicular adenomas, 16 follicular carcinomas, 7 poorly differentiated carcinomas, 28 anaplastic carcinomas, and 8 medullary carcinomas.
  • The antibodies to Pax8 and TTF-2 were also applied on 147 lung carcinomas as well as a variety of normal tissues and malignant tumors.
  • Pax8 was expressed in 79% of anaplastic carcinomas to a variable extent, whereas TTF-1 and TTF-2 were seen only in 18 and 7% of anaplastic carcinomas, respectively.
  • TTF-2 was negative in all other neoplastic and non-neoplastic tissues including those of the lung.
  • Pax8 was expressed in renal tubules, fallopian tubes, ovarian inclusion cysts, and lymphoid follicles as well as renal carcinoma, nephroblastoma, seminoma, and ovarian carcinoma, but not in normal tissue and carcinomas of the lung.
  • Pax8 is a useful marker for the diagnosis of anaplastic carcinomas, particularly when the differential diagnosis includes pulmonary carcinoma.

  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Invasion and metastasis is one of malignant phenotype of lung cancer and the important cause of the death of lung cancer patients.
  • The aim of this study is to explore the methylation profile difference in different metastatic potential cell lines.
  • METHODS: To compare the DNA methylation profile of two large cell lung cancer cell lines with different metastatic potential by MeIP chip hybridization, hypermethylated and hypomethylated genes of L9981 cell lines were analyzed online in NIH-DAVID, KEGG and MILANO webside.
  • RESULTS: Compared with NL9980 cell line, 735 genes are hypermethylated in L9981, including 656 known genes and 79 unknown genes; 809 gene are hypermethylated in L9981, including 698 known genes and 111 unknown genes; the different genes are involved in cell process, signal transduction, cell communication, cell adhesion, cell motility, and angiogenesis.
  • CONCLUSION: Hypermethylation of suppressor genes and negative regulator of signal transduction and hopomethylation of oncogene and cell adhesion molecules (CAMs) in L9981 may promote metastasis of tumor cells.

  • [Title] Behaviour and survival of high-grade neuroendocrine carcinomas of the lung.
  • INTRODUCTION: Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma is an aggressive variant of large-cell carcinoma of the lung, which has poor survival in most series, resembling that of small-cell lung carcinoma.
  • METHODS: 33 large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas and 16 peripheral small-cell lung carcinomas were reassessed retrospectively.
  • RESULTS: In large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas, there were 25 patients with pathologic stage I, 4 with pathologic stage II and 4 with pathologic stage III.
  • In small-cell lung carcinomas, there were 6 patients with pathologic stage I, 3 with pathologic stage II and 7 with pathologic stage III.
  • 12% of large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas and 62.5% of small-cell lung carcinomas were of advanced disease.
  • CONCLUSION: Large-cell neuroendocrine carcinomas of the lung have poor prognosis even in early stages, with survival rates similar to that of small-cell lung carcinomas.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Extensive expression of collapsin response mediator protein 5 (CRMP5) is a specific marker of high-grade lung neuroendocrine carcinoma.
  • The diagnosis of high-grade neuroendocrine tumors has strong clinical relevance because it identifies patients at higher risk of an unfavorable outcome who should receive multimodal treatment.
  • However, these tumors can be mistaken for poorly differentiated nonsmall cell carcinoma or carcinoid lung tumors.
  • In fact, no immunohistochemical marker can currently distinguish between histologic lung subtypes.
  • Because the collapsin response mediator protein (CRMP) family is involved in an autoimmune disease associated with small cell lung carcinoma, we explored the relationship between CRMP5 expression and lung tumor behavior.
  • Using World Health Organization morphologic criteria, 123 lung neuroendocrine tumors and 41 randomly selected non-neuroendocrine tumors were classified.
  • CRMP5 protein expression in tumors, metastases, and healthy lung tissue was assessed using immunostaining method.
  • Strong and extensive CRMP5 expression was seen in 98.6% of high-grade neuroendocrine lung tumors, including small cell lung carcinoma and large cell lung neuroendocrine carcinoma, but not in any of the squamous cell carcinomas or lung adenocarcinomas in our series.
  • In contrast, the majority of low-grade neuroendocrine lung tumors were negative for CRMP5 staining, although weak CRMP5 expression was seen in some, with 2 different staining patterns of either scattered positive cells or small foci of positive cells.
  • Our findings point at CRMP5 as a novel marker for routine pathologic evaluation of lung tumors surgical samples in distinguishing between highly aggressive neuroendocrine carcinoma and the other lung cancers.

  • A 50-year-old man with continuous hemosputa and large hematoma of left upper lobe contiguous to bilateral emphysematous bullous disease was admitted for surgery to stop hemorrhage and to resect left lung hematoma and multiple bullae.
  • Pathological examination, however, revealed anaplastic carcinoma inside bulla of S(1+2)c with minimal invasion into adhered parietal pleura (p 3).
  • The final pathological diagnosis was large cell carcinoma of left S(1+2)c with the staging pT3N0M0 and stage II.
  • Clinical analysis of Japanese 20 cases of lung carcinoma with initial signs of hemosputa and/or hemoptysis contiguous to emphysematous bullae elucidate following important facts.
  • Hemosputa and hemoptysis play important role for early finding and diagnosis of lung cancer contiguous to bullous disease, especially in patients of early clinical stage with or without computed tomography (CT) exams and promise to better surgical prognosis and survivals as compared with non hemosputa ones.

  • [Title] [The variation of intracellular distribution and translocation of the protein kinase C alpha among human lung cancer cell line with different metastasis potential.].
  • BACKGROUND: Protein Kinase C (PKC) is one of the key kinases in the cell signal transduction passway.
  • There are more reports about it's ability on cell proliferation, but fewer on invasion and metastasis in the past; and it's mechanisms are unclear.
  • The aim of this study is to analyze the variation of intracellular distribution and translocation of the protein kinase C alpha among human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line with different metastasis potential,in order to investigate the correlation between the lung carcinoma invasion and metastasis and the PKC isoforms.
  • The distribution of PKC alpha in cytosol and plasma membrane and translocation were detected among different metastatic potential human pulmonary carcinoma cells L9981, L9981-pLXSN and L9981-nm23-H1 before and after treatment with PKC inhibitor Calphostin C, by Western blot and LSCM.
  • RESULTS: PKC alpha in L9981 and L9981- pLXSN was mainly expressed on membrane, which was remarkably higher than those in L9981-nm23-H1 cell line (P =0.001); while expression of PKC alpha in cytoslol in L9981 and L9981-pLXSN cell lines, was lower than those in L9981-nm23-H1 cell line (P <0.001).
  • The expression of PKC alpha in cytosol in L9981-nm23-H1 cell line was remarkably higher than those in L9981 and L9981-pLXSN cell lines (P <0.001), while expression of PKC alpha in plasma membrane in L9981-nm23-H1 cell line, was significantly lower than those in L9981 and L9981- pLXSN cell lines (P =0.001).
  • PKC alpha is mainly located in nucleus and perinucleus in L9981 and L9981-pLXSN cells, which was in active status, In L9981-nm23-H1 cell line, PKC alpha is mainly located in soluble cytosolic section, which was in inactive status.
  • After treated with PKC inhibitor Calphostin C, the expression of PKC alpha in membrane in L9981, L9981-pLXSN and L9981-nm23-H1 was downregulated, and PKC alpha were observed mainly located in cytosolic site in all the three cell lines, which was mainly in inactive status.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The study suggests that PKC isoforms is closely correlated with human lung cancer invasion and metastasis.

  • [Title] Non-small cell lung cancer: epidemiology, risk factors, treatment, and survivorship.
  • Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality not only in the United States but also around the world.
  • In North America, lung cancer has become more predominant among former than current smokers.
  • Yet in some countries, such as China, which has experienced a dramatic increase in the cigarette smoking rate during the past 2 decades, a peak in lung cancer incidence is still expected.
  • Non-small cell lung cancer accounts for 85% of all lung cancer cases in the United States.
  • After the initial diagnosis, accurate staging of non-small cell lung cancer using computed tomography or positron emission tomography is crucial for determining appropriate therapy.
  • However, close to 70% of patients with lung cancer present with locally advanced or metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis.
  • Chemotherapy is beneficial for patients with metastatic disease, and the administration of concurrent chemotherapy and radiation is indicated for stage III lung cancer.
  • The introduction of angiogenesis, epidermal growth factor receptor inhibitors, and other new anti-cancer agents is changing the present and future of this disease and will certainly increase the number of lung cancer survivors.
  • Key terms used for this search included non-small cell lung cancer, adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, bronchioalveolar cell carcinoma, large cell carcinoma, lung cancer epidemiology, genetics, survivorship, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, targeted therapy, bevacizumab, erlotinib, and epidermal growth factor receptor.

  • [Title] [The mechanism and influence on the biological behavior of human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell lines with transfection of nm23-H1 gene.].
  • The aim of this study is to compare the biological behavior changes among three human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell lines which transfected and untransfected nm23-H1 gene, and to study the mechanism of nm23-H1 gene supressing the metastasis.
  • METHODS: Boyden Chamber and MTT method were used to detect the rates of invasion and proliferation among different human pulmonary carcinoma cells of transfected and untransfected nm23-H1 gene; meanwhile The three lung cancer cell lines were treated with PKC inhibitor Calphostin C, and the above measurements were also performed.
  • RESULTS: The ability of invasion and proliferation of L9981 and L9981-PLXSN human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cells,which lack of nm23-H1gene, was higher than that of L9981-nm23-H1 human high-metastatic large cell line, which transfected with nm23-H1gene (P <0.001).
  • There was no difference beteween L9981 and L9981-PLXSN cell lines (P >0.05).
  • After treated with PKC inhibitor Calphstin C,the invasion and proliferation ability of three lung cancer cell lines were obviously go down (P <0.001), however, the invasion and proliferation ability of L9981-nm23-H1 lung cancer cell line was still lower than those of L9981 and L9981-PLXSN lung cancer cell lines (P <0.001), and there was also no significant difference between two later cell lines (P >0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Our data suggest that nm23-H1 gene can significantly inhibit the cell proliferation and invasion in L9981 lung cancer line.
  • The effect of nm23-H1 might be correlated with downregulation of PKC signal transduction in human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line.

  • Autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED) is a very rare disorder with distinct clinical features and can occur in patients with malignancy or autoimmune diseases.
  • During the period of treatment, three episodes of AIED occurred, and eventually, lung cancer developed.

  • [Title] Pulmonary adenocarcinoma-targeted gene therapy by a cancer- and tissue-specific promoter system.
  • Gene therapy is one of the approaches used to treat lung cancer.
  • The benefit of cancer gene therapy is that different types of tumors can be selectively targeted by tumor-specific expression of therapeutic genes that include an apoptosis gene to destroy the tumor.
  • Previously, we described a promoter (TTS promoter) that we designed that is specifically targeted to lung cancer cells but not to other types of cancer or normal cells including stem cells.
  • In this pursuit, we further characterize the specificity of the TTS promoter in four types of lung cancer cells (squamous cell lung carcinoma, pulmonary adenocarcinoma, small-cell lung carcinoma, large-cell lung carcinoma).
  • The TTS promoter is highly active only in pulmonary adenocarcinoma cells but not in the other three types of lung cancer cells.
  • The TTS/Bax selectively causes BAX expression and cell death in pulmonary adenocarcinoma but not in other cells.
  • Cell death caused by the BAX expression was also observed in pulmonary adenocarcinoma that is resistant to the anticancer drug gefitinib (epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor).
  • BAX expression and cell death can be suppressed by dexamethasone (a glucocorticoid) treatment through negative glucocorticoid elements in the TTS promoter.

  • In this report, we transfected nm23-H1 cDNA into L9981, a human large cell lung cancer cell line with nm23 negative expression, and made a stable transfectant.
  • L9981-nm23-H1 cells exhibited lower cells proliferation rate, more G0/G1 phase growth and an increase in apoptosis with a dramatic decreased in the tumor cells ability to metastasize.
  • L9981-nm23-H1 cells also demonstrated a significantly reduced lymph node and pulmonary metastatic capacity in vivo when injected into the nude mice.
  • Furthermore, we used DNA microarray analysis to explore the change in expression of the metastasis-related genes in L9981-nm23-H1 cells.
  • These results demonstrated that nm23-H1 can suppress the mobility and metastatic capacity of cancer cells and the molecular mechanism by which nm23-H1 suppresses tumor metastasis may be via increasing the expression of metastasis-related genes such as beta-Catenin, E-Cadherin and TIMP-1 and decreasing the expression of MMP-2, CD44V6 and VEGF.

  • [Title] Follicular thyroid carcinoma: From diagnosis to treatment.
  • Unusual presentations with bone, lung or soft tissue metastases in initial diagnosis of follicular thyroid carcinoma have been reported occasionally.
  • This implies how difficult it is to diagnosis this type of cancer at the pre-operative or intra-operative stage of treatment.
  • Fine needle aspiration cytology has been shown to be an ineffective method for diagnosing vascular or capsule invasion of follicular thyroid cancer.
  • Although radioactive iodide (131I) has been used as the standard treatment for follicular thyroid carcinoma with distant metastases, the effectiveness of 131I treatment for follicular thyroid carcinoma depends on the differentiation of cancer cells.
  • The possibility of 131I for thyroid remnant ablation replacing a secondary operation for follicular thyroid carcinoma has been debated.
  • Recent studies applied more expressions of sodium iodide symporters to attain the effect of 131I treatment and slow the proliferation of thyroid cancer cell which, in turn, slows the progression of follicular carcinoma.
  • Consensus for the surgical procedures for the specific prognostic risks for follicular thyroid carcinoma is needed.
  • Dedifferentiated, anti-angiogenic, or gene therapies for follicular thyroid cancer with distant metastases or anaplastic transformation comprise the principal directions in future research for this cancer.

  • [Title] Antigens recognized by IgG derived from tumor-infiltrating B lymphocytes in human lung cancer.
  • BACKGROUND: Lung cancer tissues are often infiltrated by B lymphocytes, but it is not clear whether these infiltrations represent tumor-specific immune response or a nonspecific reaction.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The serological analysis of recombinant cDNA expression libraries (SEREX) were previously modified using a severe combined immunodeficient (SCID) mice model engrafted with fresh human lung cancer.
  • Here, a panel of antigens recognized by tumor-infiltrating B lymphocytes (TIB) in human lung cancer were characterized.
  • RESULTS: The modified SEREX analysis identified 22 distinct antigens in a large cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicate that the humoral immune response of TIB in lung cancer patients can be detected in the xenotransplanted SCID mouse model and our modification shows high sensitivity and specificity for identification of tumor antigens.

  • [Title] [Comparative proteomic analysis of human large cell lung cancer cell line with high and low metastasis potentials].
  • OBJECTIVE: A comparative proteomic analysis on two human large cell lung cancer strains with high metastasis potential (L9981) and low metastasis potential (NL9980) were conducted.
  • METHODS: The total proteins of the two cell lines were separated by immobilized pH gradient (IPG )-based two-dimensional gel electrophoresis.
  • The differential expression proteins of the two cell lines were analyzed using image analysis software.
  • MS and biological informatics study found that the expressions of heat shock 70 kD protein 9B precursor, MTHSP75 and glutathione synthetas incerased in L9981 cells.
  • However, a variant of P47 protein, immunoglobulin heavy chain variable region, enolasel, heat shock protein and eukaryotic translation initiation fact 3 were down-regulated in L9981 cells.
  • Pyruvate kinase (PK) was only expressed in L9981 cells while WD-40 repeat protein was only expressed in NL9980 cells.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The metastatic lung cancer cell lines display different protein profiles compared to the non metastatic lung cancer cell lines.
  • The identified proteins are likely to be associated with tumor metastasis, 4hich could serve as a basis for searching potential prognosis markers of lung cancer and elucidating the mechanisms of the metastasis of lung cancer.

  • We report the case of a patient who showed the sequential occurrence of four different lymphoid neoplasms together with a squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • Two years later, a PET-CT scan showed a left hilar mass in the lung; biopsy showed a squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Simultaneously, he was diagnosed with diffuse large B cell lymphoma in a neck lymph node; after chemo- and radiotherapy, he achieved a complete response.
  • A restaging PET-CT scan 2 years later revealed a retroperitoneal nodule, and biopsy again showed a low-grade follicular lymphoma, while a biopsy of a cutaneous scalp lesion showed a CD30-positive peripheral T cell lymphoma.
  • After some months, a liver biopsy and a right cervical lymph node biopsy showed a CD30-positive peripheral T cell lymphoma consistent with anaplastic lymphoma kinase-negative anaplastic large cell lymphoma.
  • Flow cytometry and cytogenetic and molecular genetic analysis performed at diagnosis and during the patient's follow-up confirmed the presence of two clonally distinct B cell lymphomas, while the two T cell neoplasms were confirmed to be clonally related.

  • [Title] LKB1 mutation in large cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • Germline inactivation of LKB1 is responsible for Peutz-Jeghers syndrome, an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by benign hamartomas of the GI tract and an increased predisposition to certain cancers, including lung.
  • Acquired mutations in LKB1 are rarely observed in most sporadic tumor types except for adenocarcinomas of the lung where up to 50% harbor inactivating mutations.
  • In this study, we focused on LKB1 mutations in lung cancer cell lines originating from large cell carcinomas.
  • We identified a novel 1.5kb interstitial deletion within LKB1 gene in H157 cancer cells.
  • The truncated transcript was expressed at relatively low levels, and the truncated LKB1 protein was virtually undetectable in this cell line.
  • Phosphorylation of AMPK-alpha was attenuated in H157 cells treated with 2-deoxyglucose, and could be rescued by expression of an exogenous GFP-LKB1 fusion protein.
  • Of the four cell lines and six primary tumors of large cell lung carcinoma origin that have been evaluated in this and other studies, LKB1 mutations have been found in three cases.
  • These results suggest that, in addition to adenocarcinomas, acquired loss of function mutations in LKB1 may also be frequently involved in the pathogenesis of large cell lung carcinomas.

  • [Title] Differential effect of selected methylxanthine derivatives on radiosensitization of lung carcinoma cells.
  • AIM: Using caffeine as a reference derivative, this study was performed to investigate how other methylxanthine derivatives, theophylline, 3-isobutyl-methylxanthine and 1,3-dipropyl-7-methylxanthine, sensitize cells to radiation by modifying cell cycle checkpoints and inducing the apoptotic response.
  • The effect of the methylxanthine derivatives was studied in response to gamma and ultraviolet radiation in a human large cell lung carcinoma cell line, null for p53, a normal lung epithelial cell line and the large cell lung carcinoma cell line stably transfected with p53.
  • METHODS: Effects of theophylline, 3-isobutyl-methylxanthine and 1,3-dipropyl 7-methylxanthine on cell-radiosensitization in comparison to caffeine tested by clonogenic survival assay, MTT assay, ELISA based apoptotic assay, flow cytometry, caspase-3 activity, TUNEL assay, and western blot analysis.
  • RESULTS: All the derivatives, except 3-isobutyl-methylxanthine, increased tumor cell sensitization to radiation by inducing apoptosis in the p53-null lung cancer cell line.
  • The pattern of cell cycle progression revealed that these derivatives increased the number of cells in G1 phase by abrogating the G2/M checkpoint, directing the cells to apoptose through a p53-independent mechanism.
  • In contrast, 3-isobutyl-methylxanthine was more potent than the other derivatives in radiosensitization of normal lung epithelial cells and the lung carcinoma cells stably transfected with wild-type p53.

  • [Title] Upregulation of MMP-2 by HMGA1 promotes transformation in undifferentiated, large-cell lung cancer.
  • Although lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death worldwide, the precise molecular mechanisms that give rise to lung cancer are incompletely understood.
  • Here, we show that HMGA1 is an important oncogene that drives transformation in undifferentiated, large-cell carcinoma.
  • First, we show that the HMGA1 gene is overexpressed in lung cancer cell lines and primary human lung tumors.
  • Forced overexpression of HMGA1 induces a transformed phenotype with anchorage-independent cell growth in cultured lung cells derived from normal tissue.
  • Conversely, inhibiting HMGA1 expression blocks anchorage-independent cell growth in the H1299 metastatic, undifferentiated, large-cell human lung carcinoma cells.
  • We also show that the matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) gene is a downstream target upregulated by HMGA1 in large-cell carcinoma cells.
  • In chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments, HMGA1 binds directly to the MMP-2 promoter in vivo in large-cell lung cancer cells, but not in squamous cell carcinoma cells.
  • In large-cell carcinoma cell lines, there is a significant, positive correlation between HMGA1 and MMP-2 mRNA.
  • Moreover, interfering with MMP-2 expression blocks anchorage-independent cell growth in H1299 large-cell carcinoma cells, indicating that the HMGA1-MMP-2 pathway is required for this transformation phenotype in these cells.
  • Blocking MMP-2 expression also inhibits migration and invasion in the H1299 large-cell carcinoma cells.
  • Our findings suggest an important role for MMP-2 in transformation mediated by HMGA1 in large-cell, undifferentiated lung carcinoma and support the development of strategies to target this pathway in selected tumors.

  • [Title] Enediyne lidamycin enhances the effect of epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitor, gefitinib, in epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells and lung carcinoma H460 cells.
  • In this report, the cytotoxic and biochemical activity of LDM and gefitinib on human epidermoid carcinoma A431 cells and human large cell lung cancer H460 cells as a single agent or in combination has been evaluated.
  • In the MTT assay, LDM showed much more potent cytotoxicity than gefitinib to both cell lines.
  • A431 cells with a highly EGFR-expressing level were more sensitive to gefitinib than H460 cells, which expressed EGFR at an intermediate level.
  • LDM plus gefitinib showed potentiation of antiproliferative activity and apoptosis induction, which were associated with downregulation of EGFR signaling pathway and nuclear factor-kappa B expression, and the increase of cleaved poly (adenosine diphosphate-ribose) polymerase in the two cell lines, although to a lesser degree in H460 cells.
  • Combined treatment induced G1 phase arrest similar to that of gefitinib alone in A431 cells and intensified G2/M phase accumulation in H460 cells.
  • The above results indicate that LDM potentiates the effects of gefitinib in both gefitinib sensitive and less sensitive cells in association with enhanced inhibition of EGFR-dependent signaling.

  • This report concerns a 79-year-old woman with coexisting anaplastic thyroid carcinoma (ATC) and Graves' disease (GD).
  • These findings led to a diagnosis of GD.
  • On the other hand, the thyroid nodule could not be definitely diagnosed even after fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) which produced findings suggestive of both papillary thyroid carcinoma and ATC.
  • Regional lymph node metastases as well as multiple lung metastases, which could not be found at the initial visit, had been already developed by that time.
  • Our case is pathophysiologically interesting because it suggests that GD or thyroid-stimulating antibodies (TSAb) may stimulate malignant transformation of differentiated carcinoma.

  • Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women.
  • Tumor metastasis is an essential aspect of lung cancer progression. nm23-H1 is a metastasis suppressor gene.
  • Here, we compared the gene expression profile of human large cell lung cancer cell line NL9980 by nm23-H1 gene silencing with that of negative control cells to comprehensively investigate nm23-H1-mediated changes in gene expression of NL9980 cells.
  • Furthermore, we confirmed by Western blot that the expression of MMP-1 and -2 were significantly increased while that of cystatin B was dramatically decreased in NL9980-nm23-H1 silencing cells.
  • The NL9980-nm23-H1 silencing cells exhibited significantly more S phase growth and invasive ability.
  • Thus, silencing of nm23-H1 gene caused metastasis-related gene expression changes in lung cancer cells.
  • The knockdown of nm23-H1 expression may change the lung cancer cells to a more invasive phenotype through alteration in the expression of a set of genes.

  • [Title] The C-terminal subunit of artificially truncated human cathepsin B mediates its nuclear targeting and contributes to cell viability.
  • Although Delta51CB is supposed to be devoid of the typical CB enzymatic activity, it might play a role in malignancies and trigger cell death/apoptosis independent from the function of the regular enzyme.
  • RESULTS: We investigated such "aberrant" proteins by artificial CB-GFP chimeras covering various sequence parts in respect to their enzymatic activity, their localization in different cell types, and the effects on the cell viability.
  • Unlike the entire full length CB form, the artificial single chain form was not processed and did not reveal typical enzymatic CB activity during transient overexpression in large cell lung carcinoma cells.
  • In contrast, the shorter artificial CB constructs localized in the cytoplasm, inside the cell nucleus, and in the midbodies of dividing cells.
  • Nuclear accumulation of artificially truncated CB variants led to disintegration of nuclei, followed by cell death.
  • CONCLUSION: We propose that cell death associated with CB is not necessarily triggered by its regular enzymatic activity but alternatively by a yet unknown activity profile of truncated CB.
  • Cytoplasmic CB might be able to enter the cell nucleus.
  • The results suggest that besides the N-terminal signal peptide also other CB domains contain patterns which are responsible for a differentiated targeting of the molecule, e.g. to the mitochondria, to the nucleus, or to vesicles.

  • [Title] [Primary experimental results of methylseleninic acid on the proliferation inhibition and apoptotic induction in human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line L9981].
  • BACKGROUND: It has been proved that selenium has remarkable effects in the prevention of cancer and proliferation inhibition for breast cancer and prostate cancer.
  • Up to now, little is known, however, if methylseleninic acid (MSA) has the anticancer effect on lung cancer or not.
  • The objective of this study is to detect the effect of MSA on proliferation inhibition and apoptotic induction for human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line L9981, and to explore the molecular mechanisms.
  • METHODS: The changes of proliferation, clone formation, apoptotic level and cell cycles were detected in L9981 by trypan blue staining, clone formation suppression test, and flow cytometry before and after treating with different concentration of MSA.
  • RESULTS: (1)The proliferation ability of L9981 was remarkably inhibited at the concentration of 0.5μmol/L of MSA (P < 0.05), and the cells were arrested at G0/G1 phase after treating with the same concentration. (2)Apoptosis of L9981 was remarkably induced by MSA at the concentration of 2.5μmol/L (P < 0.05). (3)The clone formation ability of L9981 was significantly suppressed by MSA at the concentration of 5.0μmol/L (P < 0.05). (4)The expression levels of P53, P21, Fas, FasL and Bax were remarkably up-regulated after treatment with MSA.
  • CONCLUSIONS: (1)MSA can significantly suppress the proliferation and clone formation ability of human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line L9981, and also induce apoptosis of L9981. (2)The anticancer effects of MSA might be related to regulate the expression of cell cycle-related genes and apoptotic-related genes in the human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer line L9981.

  • [Title] Comparison of outcomes for patients with unresectable, locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer treated with induction chemotherapy followed by concurrent chemoradiation vs. concurrent chemoradiation alone.
  • PURPOSE: To retrospectively compare outcomes for patients with unresectable locally advanced non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treated at our institution with concurrent chemoradiation with or without induction chemotherapy.
  • A planned subgroup analysis showed that induction chemotherapy was associated with a significant overall survival benefit for patients with adenocarcinoma or large-cell carcinoma (5-year rate, 24% vs. 8%; p = 0.003) but not for those with squamous cell carcinoma.
  • A multivariate analysis of patients with adenocarcinoma or large-cell carcinoma confirmed that induction chemotherapy was the most significant factor associated with better overall survival, with a hazard ratio of 0.47 (95% confidence interval, 0.28-0.78; p = 0.003).
  • CONCLUSION: Our retrospective analysis suggests that in combination with concurrent chemoradiation, induction chemotherapy may provide a small but significant survival benefit for patients with unresectable locally advanced adenocarcinoma or large-cell carcinoma of the lung.

  • [Title] [Genome-wide detection of loss of heterozygosity and copy number variation in a human lung large cell carcinoma cell line by affymetrix single-nucleotide polymorphism array 500K.].
  • BACKGROUND: Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and Copy number copy number variation (CNV) of DNA sequences is a common feature of cancer genomes, which is thought to be linked to tumorigenesis and progression.
  • High-density singlenucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping array are able to provided a genotype and copy number information with genome-wide coverage, which is suitable for the analysis of complex genetic alterations present in cancer.
  • Thus a human lung large cell carcinoma cell line NL9980 was assayed for the global profile of LOH and CNV.
  • METHODS: Genomic DNA from the cell line was screened for LOH and CNV using Affymetrix GeneChip(R) Human Mapping array 500K Set.
  • The hybridization intensity data of 500 000 SNP loci was analyzed using Affymetrix proprietary software for genotyping and copy number of each locus, and a genome-wide map of LOH and CNV of the cell line was constructed.
  • And it is possible to achieve high performance outcomes using Affymetrix SNP array 500K to interrogate LOH and CNV in lung cancer genome.
  • This advance of highresolution with allelic information should substantially improve the ability to further understanding of the genetic basis of lung cancers.

  • [Title] Isolation of multiple cell-binding ligands from different phage displayed-peptide libraries.
  • A technical challenge in the development of biosensor devices for cancer detection and diagnosis is the identification of ligands that recognize cancer cells with high affinity and specificity.
  • Furthermore, it is unlikely that one cell-binding ligand will provide sufficient biological information, thus, multiple ligands for a given cancer type will be needed for confident clinical diagnosis.
  • Biopanning of phage displayed peptide libraries is a route to isolation of specific cell-binding reagents.
  • A potential approach towards isolation of multiple ligands for a single cell type is to pan against the same cell type using different peptide libraries.
  • Here we report the synthesis of a new 20-mer peptide-phage library and its use to select a peptide that binds to the large cell lung carcinoma cell line, H1299.
  • The isolated phage clone binds H1299 cells 80 times better than a control phage and can distinguish between H1299 and normal control cells.
  • The phage clone also binds to the lung pleura epidermoid cell line, Calu-1 but not to all lung carcinoma cell lines.
  • The tetrameric peptide can be used to deliver a fluorescent quantum dot to H1299 cells.
  • Our results imply that cell-based biopanning can isolate cell-binding ligands that may be of utility for cancer diagnosis, and isolation of cell-targeting peptides from different peptide libraries can expand the repertoire of cell-binding reagents.

  • [Title] [Relationship between the acquired multi-drug resistance of human large cell lung cancer cell line NCI-H460 by cisplatin selection and p53 mutation].
  • OBJECTIVE: To explore the role of p53 mutation in the development of acquired multi-drug resistance during lung cancer chemotherapy.
  • METHODS: A resistance large cell lung carcinoma cell line (H460/DDP) was established by high dose (50 micromol/L) cisplatin intermittent selection from its parental cell NCI-H460 that had wild type p53 (wtp53).
  • Several multi-drug resistant proteins (MRP) including lung relative protein (LRP), P-gp, MRP, glutathione transferase-pi, topoisomerase II and P53 were checked by immunocytochemistry.
  • The H460/DDP cells were transected with plasmid pShuttle-CMV-wtp53 cDNA and measurement of drug sensitivity was performed after transfection.
  • RESULTS: The resistance index to cisplatin and carboplatin in H460/DDP cell line was 10.21 and 9.98 respectively, and the cell line also exhibited cross-resistance to 5-fluorouracil, etoposide, methotrexate, adriamycin, epirubicin, bleomycin and novantrone, except for taxol.
  • H460/DDP cells transfected with plasmid pShuttle-CMV-wtp53 cDNA reversed partly (53.2%) the resistance to cisplatin/carboplatin, compared to the H460/DDP cells transfected with blank vector.
  • CONCLUSIONS: p53 mutation induced by cisplatin/carboplatin might play an important role in the development of acquired multi-drug resistance of lung cancer chemotherapy. wtp53 substitute therapy during chemotherapy may be an effective method to overcome the acquired drug resistance.

  • [Title] Diagnosis of metastatic tumours to the thyroid gland by fine needle aspiration biopsy.
  • They are most often caused by tumours of the kidneys, lungs, mammary glands, ovary, and colon or by melanomas.
  • RESULTS: Among 7 patients with thyroid metastases from renal clear cell carcinoma, as diagnosed postoperatively, cytology of the thyroid material obtained through FNA revealed follicular tumour in 3 (43%) patients, tumour cells in 2 (28.5%) and atypical cells in the other 2 (28.5%).
  • Intraoperative histopathology confirmed the presence of metastasis from renal clear cell carcinoma (1) and indicated thyroid medullary cancer (1), follicular tumour (4), or trabecular adenoma with necrosis (1).
  • Among two patients with thyroid metastases from breast cancer, cytology confirmed a metastasis from breast cancer in one (the woman was disqualified for surgical treatment) and indicated follicular tumour in one.
  • Intraoperative histopathology suggested thyroid anaplastic cancer.
  • Examination of biopsy specimen revealed epithelial cells accompanied by cell atypia in one patient with thyroid metastasis from lung cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Follicular tumour diagnosed by fine needle aspiration biopsy in patients after treatment for other cancers, especially renal clear cell carcinoma, should alert the surgeon to the possibility that it could be a metastasis of this cancer to the thyroid gland.

  • He died from large cell lung carcinoma at the age of 23 years.
  • A de novo heterozygous insertion mutation 859-860insC in the TITF-1 gene was demonstrated.
  • CONCLUSION: TITF-1 gene mutations should be considered in paediatric and adult patients with unexplained (combinations of) chorea, mental retardation, primary hypothyroidism, and chronic lung disease.
  • Introduction of a name for the disorder, e.g.
  • Brain-Thyroid-Lung syndrome, would probably facilitate further recognition.
  • Whether the TITF-1 gene mutation in this patient predisposed to the development of lung cancer remains speculative.

  • [Title] [Neuroendocrine differentiation as a survival prognostic factor in advanced non-small cell lung cancer].
  • BACKGROUND/AIM: Neuroendrocine lung tumors are histologically heterogenous group of cancers with different clinical progression.
  • In non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) neuroendocrine differentiation exists in 10-30% of patients.
  • The aim of this study was to determine the frequency and influence of neuroendocrine differentiation on survival of treated patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
  • METHODS: A clinical trial included 158 patients (74% males and 26% females), with the diagnosis of NSCLC, determined by histological verification.
  • RESULTS: A total of 53 patients (34%) had NSCLC with neuroendocrine differentiation, confirmed rather in large cell lung cancer and lung adenocarcinoma (66.7% and 40%, respectively).
  • One year follow-up survival time was longer in the patients with neuron specific enolase and chromogranin A expression lung cancer (p < 0.001).

  • In contrast, reduced ferrocene derivatives frequently only show activity if cell components can oxidise them inside cells to the ferrocenium species.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: Ferrocene-containing beta-diketones of the type FcCOCH2COR with Fc=ferrocenyl and R=CF3, CCl3, CH3, Ph(=C6H5, phenyl) and Fc, were tested for cytotoxicity against HeLa (human cervix epitheloid), COR L23 (human large cell lung carcinoma) and platinum resistant CoLo320DM (human colorectal) and COR L23/CPR cancer cell lines.
  • Cell survival was measured by means of the colorometric 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay.
  • RESULTS: The mean drug concentration from 3 experiments causing 50% cell growth inhibition, (IC50) values, varied between 4.5 and 85.0 micromol dm(-3'), with the CF3(-) containing beta-diketone being the most active.
  • Drug activity was inversely proportional to the formal reduction potential, Eo', of the ferrocenyl group, and dependent on the R group in the general beta-diketone structure.
  • The CF3 complex was more cytotocic than cisplatin inter alia against platinum-resistant cell lines, and at least eight times more reactive against cancer cell lines than against PHA (phytohaemagglutinin)-stimulated lymphocyte cultures.

  • [Title] [Quantitative study of thyroid transcription factor-1 protein expression in lung carcinoma cell nucleus by tissue microarray].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1) expression in normal human adult type II alveolar epithelial cells, embryonic pneumocytes, lung carcinoma cells and lymph node metastases of lung cancer.
  • METHODS: Lung carcinoma tissue microarray was constructed containing 765 cores of 20 normal adult lung tissues, 15 embryonic lung tissues, 100 lung carcinomas and 55 corresponding lymph node metastases.
  • RESULTS: The number TTF-1 positive units (PU) was smaller in the nuclei of embryonic pneumocytes than in those of normal adult type II alveolar epithelial cells (P<0.001).
  • The nuclei of lung carcinoma cells had smaller TTF-1 PU than normal adult type II alveolar epithelial cells and embryonic pneumocyte nuclei (P<0.001).
  • The lung adenocarcinoma and small cell lung carcinoma cell nuclei had greater TTF-1 PU than squamous cell carcinoma and large cell lung carcinoma cell nuclei (P<0.001).
  • TTF-1 PU was greater in squamous cell carcinoma cell nuclei than in large cell lung carcinoma cell nuclei (P<0.001).
  • In lung adenocarcinoma, squamous cell lung carcinoma and large cell lung carcinoma, TTF-1 PU was greater in the cancerous cell nuclei of lymph node metastases than in the corresponding primary carcinoma cell nuclei (P<0.001, P<0.001, and P<0.05, respectively).
  • In small cell lung carcinoma, TTF-1 PU of the cancerous cell nuclei of lymph node metastases was similar to that of primary carcinomas (P>0.05).
  • TTF-1 PU was greater in lung carcinoma with lymph node metastases than in those without metastalsis (P<0.001).
  • TTF-1 PU of the cell nuclei was not associated with the tumor growth pattern, differentiation and patients' gender (P>0.05), but was greater in TNM stage II-IV than in stage I (P<0.001).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The amount of TTF-1 in the cell nuclei decreases in the order of normal adult type II alveolar epithelial cells, embryonic pneumocytes and lung carcinoma cells.
  • TTF-1 expression is higher in adenocarcinoma and small cell carcinoma and lower in squamous carcinoma and large cell carcinoma.
  • Stronger TTF-1 expression is associated with greater likeliness of lung carcinoma metastatie, and can be an important hallmark for metastasis potential of lung adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and large cell carcinoma.

  • [Title] Desmocollin-3: a new marker of squamous differentiation in undifferentiated large-cell carcinoma of the lung.
  • Lung cancer classification in small-cell and non-small-cell types was recently challenged by data on the differential efficacy of new cytotoxic agents in specific histotypes.
  • An accurate histotype definition has therefore gained interest in both preoperative and surgical materials, but is a hard task especially in undifferentiated large-cell tumors lacking morphological signs of squamous or glandular differentiation.
  • On the basis of gene expression profiling data, reporting a remarkable differential expression of desmocollin-3 (a protein localized in desmosomal junctions of stratified epithelial) between adeno- and squamous cancers, we immunostained 62 cases of resected undifferentiated large-cell lung carcinomas for desmocollin-3 (and for TTF-1, p63 and mucin stain), to test its ability to identify a (residual) squamous phenotype, if present.
  • Desmocollin-3 was expressed in almost half of the undifferentiated large-cell cancers and was mutually exclusive with TTF-1 (positive in 39%; the remaining 18 % of cases was double negative).
  • Special large-cell carcinoma variants expressed desmocollin-3 in 6 of 6 basaloid, 7 of 12 clear-cell types, again mutually exclusive with TTF-1 expression.
  • In 31 cytological samples diagnosed as 'non-small-cell lung carcinoma', desmocollin-3 was again mutually exclusive with TTF-1 and stained all squamous carcinomas, 1 of 19 adenocarcinoma only, and 50% of large-cell carcinoma (all histologically confirmed).
  • This combined morphophenotypic approach may represent a valid adjunct (for both surgical and cytological samples) in the selection of patients with lung cancer to medical treatments tailored according to different efficacy in different lung carcinomas of the squamous, adeno- and large-cell types.

  • [Title] Endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+-homeostasis is altered in Small and non-small Cell Lung Cancer cell lines.
  • BACKGROUND: Knowledge of differences in the cellular physiology of malignant and non-malignant cells is a prerequisite for the development of cancer treatments that effectively kill cancer without damaging normal cells.
  • We aimed to investigate if the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca2+-homeostasis is different in lung cancer and normal human bronchial epithelial (NHBE) cells.
  • RESULTS: In a Small Cell Lung Cancer (H1339) and an Adeno Carcinoma Lung Cancer (HCC) cell line but not in a Squamous Cell Lung Cancer (EPLC) and a Large Cell Lung Cancer (LCLC) cell line the ER Ca2+-content was reduced compared to NHBE.
  • Lowering the ER Ca2+-content with CPA led to increased proliferation NHBE and lung cancer cells.
  • CONCLUSION: The significant differences in Ca2+-homeostasis between lung cancer and NHBE cells could represent a new target for cancer treatments.

  • [Title] Core classification of lung cancer: correlating nuclear size and mitoses with ploidy and clinicopathological parameters.
  • We attempted to establish a microscopy based tumour characterization providing insight into the genetics of cancer cells and in particular their DNA ploidy.
  • This classification was applied to 155 lung cancer samples from all major histologic types and the results were correlated with the analysis by DNA image cytometry and patient survival.
  • The morphological assessments correlated highly significantly with the DNA ploidy parameters, e.g. small cell lung carcinomas showed the smallest values for nuclear size (mean core score of 1.18) and DNA content (DNA index mean of 2.08c) being highly significantly different from adenocarcinomas (1.95/3.10c), large cell lung carcinoma (2.00/3.26c) and squamous cell carcinoma (2.20/3.42c).
  • In non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) in general and adenocarcinoma in particular, the core size variability correlated significantly with grading and survival.
  • As a complement to histologic tumour diagnosis the core classification should help to better stratify cancer subtypes.

  • [Title] Antiproliferative effect of Toona sinensis leaf extract on non-small-cell lung cancer.
  • However, their effect against cancer cells is not well explored.
  • In this study, to understand the cytotoxic effect and molecular mechanism stimulated by TSL-1 (TS leaf extract fraction) we employed three different non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines: H441 cells (lung adenocarcinoma), H661 cells (lung large cell carcinoma) and H520 cells (lung squamous cell carcinoma).
  • IC50 value was varied between these three cell lines, the least IC(50) value was observed in TSL-1-treated H661cells.
  • Exposure of NSCLC cells to TSL-1 caused cell-cycle arrest in subG1 phase and caused apoptosis.
  • Moreover, TSL-1 treatment decreased the cell-cycle regulators; cyclin D1 and CDK4 proteins by up regulating p27 expression in a dose-dependent manner.
  • Thus, the TSL-1-induced apoptosis was further confirmed by cell morphology, subG1 peak accumulation, poly(adenosine diphosphate [ADP]-ribose) polymerase (PARP) cleavage, propidium iodide (PI)-Annexin-V double staining, and terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end-labeling (TUNEL) assay.
  • The decreased Bcl2 protein level was concurrent with an increased Bax protein level in all 3 cell lines.

  • BACKGROUND: It has been proven that nm23-H1 gene is an important metastaticsuppressed gene of lung cancer.
  • In order to screen the differential expression genes related to nm23-H1 , we constructed the suppression subtractive cDNA libraries of human large cell lung cancer line L9981 transfected and untransfected with nm23-H1 gene by suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) in this study, which lay a solid foundation for further screening and cloning metastatic-related genes of nm23-H1.
  • METHODS: The forward and reverse suppression subtractive cDNA libraries were constructed in the human large cell lung cancer line L9981 before and after transfection with nm23-H1 gene (L9981 and L9981-nm23-H1) by SSH method.
  • RESULTS: The suppression subtractive cDNA libraries were successfully constructed in the human large cell lung cancer line L9981 transfected and untransfected with nm23-H1 gene (L9981-nm23-H1 and L9981).
  • The forward and reverse suppression subtractive cDNA libraries of human large cell lung cancer line L9981 transfected and untransfected with nm23-H1 gene (L9981-nm23-H1 and L9981) are successfully constructed by SSH and T/A cloning technology.
  • The expression of nm23-H1 gene in the human large cell lung cancer cell lines may affect the differential expression of some metastatic-related genes.

  • This study aims to evaluate large cell carcinomas (LCC) of the lung with a panel of immunohistochemical markers in an attempt to identify tumors belonging to other categories.
  • The tumors were 82 (81.3%) classic LCC, 7 (6.9%) neuroendocrine LCC, 6 (5.9%) lymphoepithelioma-like LCC, 3 (2.9%) basaloid LCC, 2 (2%) clear cell LCC, and 1 (1%) LCC with rhabdoid phenotype.
  • Characteristic classic LCC immunophenotype was loss of staining with CK5/6, CK14 positive in most squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), lack of MOC 31 positive in most adenocarcinomas, and positive immunoreactivity to EGFR, PDGFR-alpha and c-kit.
  • 16 (19.5%) of 82 classic LCC correspond to undifferentiated adenosquamous carcinomas, since they displayed conflicting immunostaining for markers of both SCC and adenocarcinomas.
  • The use of 7 immunohistochemical markers, consisting of TTF-1, CK7, CK19, p63, 34betaE12, thrombomodulin, and CD44v6, markedly reduces dramatically to less than 10%, the number of classic LCC by readily identifying cases of poorly differentiated SCCs, adenosquamous carcinoma and adenocarcinomas.

  • [Title] CYFRA 21-1 in non-small cell lung cancer--standardisation and application during diagnosis.
  • Standardisation is achieved by determining the reference range in asymptomatic population, benign and malignant lung diseases, and benign and malignant diseases of other organs.
  • The cut-off level of CYFRA 21-1 for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is 1.72 ng/mL in the Croatian population.
  • It is based on the clinically applicable sensitivity of 78% and specificity of 95% in benign lung diseases.
  • For clinicians the level of CYFRA 21-1 is an early sign of NSCLC in relation to all the benign lung diseases and all the benign diseases of other organs, of which it was confirmed that they can influence the above level, provided that NSCLC is verified using standard diagnostic methods.
  • The sensitivity of CYFRA 21-1 in NSCLC is 78%, in squamous cell lung cancer (SQC) 84.6%, in adenocarcinomas (AD) 74.3% and in large cell lung cancer (LCC) 75.3%.
  • The level of CYFRA 21-1 prompts clinicians to repeat the clinical procedure during diagnosis, and helps to detect the disease earlier and implement treatment in NSCLC.

  • [Title] Ethnobotanical survey and cytotoxicity testing of plants of South-western Nigeria used to treat cancer, with isolation of cytotoxic constituents from Cajanus cajan Millsp. leaves.
  • AIM OF STUDY: To document plants commonly used to treat cancer in South-western Nigeria and to test the scientific basis of the claims using in vitro cytotoxicity tests.
  • Three cancer cell lines (human breast adenocarcinoma cell line MCF-7, human large cell lung carcinoma cell line COR-L23 and human amelanotic melanoma C32) and one normal cell line (normal human keratinocytes SVK-14) were used for the screening of the extracts and the fractions obtained.
  • Pinostrobin and longistylins A and C were tested for cytotoxicity on the cancer cell lines.
  • In addition, an adriamycin-sensitive acute T-lymphoblastic leukaemia cell line (CCRF-CEM) and its multidrug-resistant sub-line (CEM/ADR5000) were used in an XTT assay to evaluate the activity of the pure compounds obtained.
  • The dichloromethane fraction of Cajanus cajan had IC(50) value 5-10 microg/mL, with the two constituent stilbenes, longistylins A and C, being primarily responsible, with IC(50) values of 0.7-14.7 microM against the range of cancer cell lines.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Most of the species tested had some cytotoxic effect on the cancer cell lines, which to some extent supports their traditional inclusion in herbal preparations for treatment of cancer.
  • However, little selectivity for cancer cells was observed, which raises concerns over their safety and efficacy in traditional treatment.

  • It is unusual for a malignant lung tumor to present clinically as a cystic lesion.
  • A case of large cell carcinoma of the lung mimicking pulmonary hydatid cyst is reported herein.
  • The patient was found to have positive serological test for Echinococcus granulosus and therefore the preoperative diagnosis was that of complicated pulmonary hydatid cyst.
  • Intra-operative findings included presence of a large cavity filled with necrotic material and "daughter cysts".
  • Histopathological evaluation of the excised specimen showed large cell carcinoma.
  • The case highlights the fact that a lung carcinoma may rarely have clinical, radiological, and serological features similar to those of a pulmonary hydatid cyst.

  • [Title] Thyroid metastasis in a patient with hepatocellular carcinoma: case report and review of literature.
  • BACKGROUND: Despite the apparent low incidence of cancer metastatic to the thyroid, autopsy and clinical series suggest it is more common than generally.
  • Although lung, renal, and breast cancer are probably the most common primary sites, a number of cancers have been reported to metastasize to the thyroid synchronously with diagnosis of primary tumor or years after apparently curative treatment.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We report a rare case of a hepatocellular carcinoma metasatic to the thyroid.
  • The patient presented seven months after original diagnosis and treatment with hepatic lobectomy with multiple neck lesions producing a mass effect on the trachea and bilateral lymphadenopathy.
  • Fine-needle aspiration revealed highly anaplastic carcinoma, and immunohistochemistry confirmed hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • CONCLUSION: Clinicians should consider the possibility of metastatic cancer in each patient who presents with a new thyroid mass, especially those with a history of cancer, however remote.
  • In cases where cytology or histology is not diagnostic, immunohistochemistry may be definitive in making the diagnosis.

  • [Title] Giant-cell anaplastic carcinoma with osteoclastic giant cells of the chest cavity: a distinctive form of thymic carcinoma?
  • Here, the authors describe a case of giant-cell anaplastic carcinoma with osteoclastic giant cells of the chest cavity-which could be a distinctive form of thymic carcinoma-which expressed CD5 and CD45.
  • During the operation, it was found that the mass occupied most of the chest invading the chest wall, aorta, vena cava, and lung tissue.
  • The tumor was composed of large areas of necrosis and anaplastic neoplastic giant cells with high mitotic activity, and osteoclast-like cells; there was marked inflammatory cell infiltration.
  • The anaplastic neoplastic giant cells were immunoreactive for CKpan, CD5, CD45, VIM, and p53.
  • Approximately 50% to 60% of the tumor cells showed immunoreactivity for Ki-67.
  • In situ hybridization for Epstein-Barr virus-encoded RNA was negative for tumor cells and nonneoplastic osteoclastic giant cells.
  • Because this tumor is very rare, extensive clinical, radiological, and morphological examinations as well as immunohistochemical studies are essential to make the diagnosis.

  • [Title] [Analysis of two-dimension gel electrophoresis of human large cell lung cancer cell lines with different metastasis potentials].
  • BACKGROUND: Metastasis is not only the malignant characteristics of lung can- cer, but also the chief cause of failure to cure and high mortality of lung cancer.
  • To better explore and understand the mechanism of lung cancer metastasis and to search for potential markers for early diagnosing and reversing lung cancer metastasis, differential proteomic analysis is conducted in two human large cell lung cancer cell lines with high metastasis potentials (L9981) and low metastasis potentials (NL9980) by two-dimension gel electrophoresis (2-DE).
  • METHODS: The total proteins of the two cell lines were separated by immobilized pH gradient (IPG)-based 2-DE.
  • The differentially expressed proteins of the two cell lines were analyzed using image analysis software.
  • RESULTS: A high resolution and reproducible 2-DE image was successfully obtained.
  • The average total number of protein spots was 902±169 in L9981 cells and 941±173 in NL9980 cells in three repeated experiments.
  • Image analysis of siliver-stained 2-DE image revealed that 4 protein spots had significant differential expressions in L9981 and NL9980 (student's t-test, P < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: The results in this study suggest that an obviously differential proteomic expression exists between the human high- and low-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell lines.
  • It will be helpful to further understand the molecular mechanisms of lung cancer invasion and metastasis, and provide new experimental evidence for searching metastatic-related molecule of lung cancer.

  • [Title] Diallyl trisulfide selectively causes Bax- and Bak-mediated apoptosis in human lung cancer cells.
  • We now demonstrate that garlic constituent diallyl trisulfide (DATS) suppresses viability of cultured human lung cancer cell lines H358 (anon-small cell lung cancer cell line) and H460 (a large cell lung cancer cell line) by causing G2-M phase cell cycle arrest and apoptotic cell death.
  • On the other hand, a normal human bronchial epithelial cell line BEAS-2B was significantly more resistant to growth inhibition and apoptosis induction by DATS compared with lung cancer cells.
  • For example, DATS was significantly more effective than either diallyl sulfide or diallyl disulfide against proliferation of lung cancer cells.
  • The DATS-mediated G2-M phase cell cycle arrest was explained by down-regulation of cyclin-dependent kinase 1 (Cdk1) and cell division cycle 25C protein expression leading to accumulation of Tyr15 phosphorylated (inactive) Cdk1.
  • The DATS-induced apoptosis correlated with induction of pro-apoptotic proteins Bax, Bak and BID, and a decrease in the expression of anti-apoptotic proteins Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL in lung cancer cells but not in BEAS-2B.
  • In conclusion, the present study indicates that Bax and Bak proteins are critical targets of DATS-induced apoptosis in human lung cancer cells.

  • [Title] Generation of diverse mutated tumor antigen-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes in a lung cancer patient with long survival.
  • We have identified an antigen recognized on a large cell carcinoma of the lung by tumor-specific cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL).
  • Using HLA-A2-peptide tetramers, we have derived from patient peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) and autologous tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (TIL) several mutated alpha-actinin-4-specific T cell clones.
  • These clones displayed similar tetramer staining but distinct T cell receptor (TCR) usage and antitumor reactivity.
  • Indeed, TIL clones lysed more efficiently the autologous tumor cells and released higher cytokine levels than PBL clones.
  • Importantly, treatment of cancer cells with interferon-gamma enhanced their susceptibility to PBL clone-mediated lysis correlated with increase in HLA-class I expression.
  • The present findings provide evidence that an immune T cell response took place in a lung cancer patient with favorable clinical evolution and suggest that CTL, recognizing a truly tumor-specific antigen, may contribute to controlling the tumor.

  • [Title] Cell cycle analysis and cytotoxic potential of Ruta graveolens against human tumor cell lines.
  • The aim of the present study was to evaluate in vitro cytotoxicity of the total extract of R. graveolens against tumor cell lines of different origin.
  • Aerial parts of the plant was extracted with 70% ethanol by sonication method and cytotoxic activity was examined on RAJI, RAMOS, RPMI8866, U937, Jurkat, MDA-MB-453, MCF-7, LNCap-FGC-10, 5637, HeLa, SK-OV-3, A549, Mehr-80 and also peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) by the use of WST-1 assay.
  • Results were expressed as IC(50) values. R. graveolens extract showed high cytotoxic activity against RAJI and RAMOS, two Burkitt's lymphoma cell lines, with an IC(50) equal to 24.3 microg/ml and 35.2 microg/ml respectively and LNCap-FGC-10, a prostate adenocarcinoma cell line with an IC(50) equal to 27.6 microg/ml as well as Mehr-80, a newly established Large Cell Lung Carcinoma (IC(50)=46.2 microg/ml).
  • No significant anti-proliferative activity was observed on other cell lines including MCF-7, MDA-MB-453, SK-OV-3, HeLa, 5637, JURKAT and RPMI8866.
  • Adverse cytotoxic effect of R. graveolens was investigated against PBMCs and a significantly lower effect of this extract (IC(50)=104 microg/ml) was seen on normal cells compared with RAJI and RAMOS, two haematopoietic cell lines.

  • METHODS AND MATERIALS: We reviewed 685 charts of patients treated for upper lobe lung cancer between 1997 and 2003.
  • Twenty-nine out of 685 patients (4%) had a diagnosis of Pancoast or superior sulcus tumor.
  • The histology includes 11 patients with adenocarcinoma, seven with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), six with squamous cell carcinoma, four with large cell carcinoma, and one with anaplastic carcinoma.
  • Two patients (stage IV) had brain metastasis at the time of presentation and five patients (stage IIB-III) developed brain metastasis at a median time of 10 months after the diagnosis.
  • Stage associated with brain metastasis after diagnosis is two patients for stage IIB, two for stage IIIA, and one for stage IIIB.
  • Histology for seven patients with brain metastasis was four of seven with adenocarcinoma, two of seven with squamous cell carcinoma, and one of seven with NSCLC.
  • CONCLUSION: Brain metatasis may be relatively common at diagnosis.

  • [Title] Selected markers (chromogranin A, neuron-specific enolase, synaptophysin, protein gene product 9.5) in diagnosis and prognosis of neuroendocrine pulmonary tumours.
  • Neuroendocrine tumours of lungs represent a subgroup of pulmonary tumours with typical morphofunctional traits.
  • In light microscopy, the four principal types of the tumours (typical and atypical carcinoids, small cell lung cancer, large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma) demonstrate typical arrangement of cells (organoid nesting, palisading, a trabecular pattern, and rosette-like structures), variable number of mitoses, presence or absence of necrosis.
  • In ultrastructure, neuroendocrine tumours manifest groups of cells with cytoplasmic granules (and the so called dense-core neurosecretory granules in particular).
  • Neuroendocrine cells release hormones to circulation or in a paracrine manner.
  • Until now, the most sensitive and specific marker or marker combination for early detection of neuroendocrine subtypes of lung tumours has not been identified.
  • Both in endocrine and non-endocrine tumours, neuron-specific enolase (NSE) is thought to represent mainly a prognostic index, and only quantitation of serum concentrations of the protein or of the fraction of immunopositive cells may permit to differentiate between subtypes of the tumours.
  • With increasing frequency, PGP 9.5 is regarded to provide a prognostic marker in diagnosis of non-small cell lung carcinomas rather than of typical neuroendocrine tumours.

  • [Title] [Comparative proteomics study on human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell lines before and after transfecting with nm23-H1 gene].
  • The aim of this study is to better understand the mechanism of lung cancer metastasis and to find new biomarkers for early diagnosis and new target for therapy by conducting comparative proteomics between the human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell lines (L9981) and L9981-nm23-H1 (constructed with transfecting nm23-H1 gene into the L9981 cell line).
  • METHODS: The total proteins of L9981 and L9981-nm23-H1 were separated by immobilized pH gradient (IPG)-based 2-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE); the significantly differently expressed proteins were examined by mass spectrometry and analyzed by bioinformatics.
  • RESULTS: It was observed that nm23-H1 gene transfection caused remarkable changes of the proteome of L9981 compared with L9981-nm23-H1 cells: 5 proteins were deleted, 9 proteins appeared, 16 proteins downregulated, and 12 proteins up-regulated.
  • These proteins are involved in cell framework, signal transduction, metabolism, proliferation and metastasis.
  • These changes of the proteome could serve as a basis for reversing the invasive and metastatic phenotype in lung cancer and elucidating the mechanisms of the metastasis of lung cancer.

  • [Title] [Selenium compounds induce ROS in human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line L9981.].
  • BACKGROUND: It has been proved that methylseleninic acid (MSA) is a kind of artificially developed selenium compound, which appeared to be the best candidate for cancer prevention and therapy.
  • METHODS: We confirmed that MSA and selenite have the anticancer effect in the human high-metastatic large cell lung cancer cell line L9981 by growth inhibition detection, we detect the ROS induced by MSA and selenite in L9981 by fluorescence microscopy, and use flow cytometry to quantitate the ROS induced by NAC together with selenium compounds.
  • CONCLUSIONS: (1)MSA and selenite had anti-L9981 effect. (2)Oxidative stress reaction may participate in the induction of apoptosis by MSA and selenite in lung cancer cell line L9981.

  • [Title] Lung cancer mimicking as pregnancy with pneumonia.
  • SUMMARY: Lung cancer that presents with secretion of beta HCG is rare.
  • With non-resolution of the consolidation and progression of her symptoms she subsequently was found to have large cell lung cancer with ectopic beta HCG secretion.
  • Ectopic production of a variety of hormones such as ADH, parathyroid hormone, ACTH, insulin-like growth factor thus leading to presentation as endocrine syndromes in patients with lung cancer is well known.
  • The presentation of lung cancer mimicking as pregnancy has not been previously reported.
  • This may prevent a delay in the diagnosis and treatment of malignancy in young women.

  • [Title] Establishment in severe combined immunodeficiency mice of subrenal capsule xenografts and transplantable tumor lines from a variety of primary human lung cancers: potential models for studying tumor progression-related changes.
  • PURPOSE: Lung cancer is a biologically diverse disease and relevant models reflecting its diversity would facilitate the improvement of existing therapies.
  • With a view to establishing such models, we developed and evaluated xenografts of a variety of human lung cancers.
  • EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Using nonobese diabetic/severe combined immunodeficiency mice, subrenal capsule xenografts were generated from primary lung cancer tissue, including moderately and poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, small cell carcinoma, large cell undifferentiated carcinoma, and carcinosarcoma.
  • Immunohistochemistry and fluorescence in situ hybridization confirmed the human origin of the tumor cells and development in xenografts of murine supportive stroma.
  • Four transplantable lines were developed from rapidly growing tumors (>5 generations), i.e., a small cell lung carcinoma, large cell undifferentiated carcinoma, pulmonary carcinosarcoma, and squamous cell carcinoma.
  • Analyses including spectral karyotyping, comparative genomic hybridization, and fluorescence in situ hybridization, revealed that the xenografts were genetically similar to the original tumors, showing chromosomal abnormalities consistent with karyotypic changes reported for lung cancer.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The subrenal capsule xenograft approach essentially provides a living tumor bank derived from patient material and a means for isolating and expanding specific cell populations.

  • [Title] Toona sinensis extracts induced cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in the human lung large cell carcinoma.
  • Toona sinensis extracts have been shown to exhibit anti-cancer effects in human ovarian cancer cell lines, human promyelocytic leukemia cells and human lung adenocarcinoma.
  • However, its anti-cancer properties in human lung large cell carcinoma have not been studied.
  • Here, we used a powder obtained by freeze-drying the supernatant of centrifuged crude extract from Toona sinensis leaves (TSL-1) to treat the human lung carcinoma cell line H661.
  • Cell viability was evaluated by the 3-(4-,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5 diphenyl tetrazolium bromide assay.
  • Flow cytometry analysis revealed that TSL-1 blocked H661 cell cycle progression.
  • Western blot analysis showed decreased expression of cell cycle proteins that promote cell cycle progression, including cyclin-dependent kinase 4 and cyclin D1, and increased the expression of proteins that inhibit cell cycle progression, including p27.
  • Furthermore, flow cytometry analysis showed that TSL-1 induced H661 cell apoptosis.
  • Western blot analysis showed that TSL-1 reduced the expression of the anti-apoptotic protein B-cell lymphoma 2, and degraded the DNA repair protein, poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase.
  • TSL-1 shows potential as a novel therapeutic agent or for use as an adjuvant for treating human lung large cell carcinoma.

  • [Title] Papillary thyroid carcinoma producing granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor is associated with neutrophilia and eosinophilia.
  • Thyroid tumors producing colony-stimulating factors associated with neutrophilia and/or eosinophilia are very rare and almost all of them concern anaplastic thyroid cancer.
  • Only one case of papillary thyroid carcinoma associated with neutrophilia and one case of medullary thyroid carcinoma associated with eosinophilia have been reported.
  • In this report a 72-year old male patient with metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma associated with neutrophilia and eosinophilia is described.
  • While investigating the cause of neutrophilia and eosinophilia, a blind bone marrow biopsy of the posterior iliac crest was performed, which showed infiltration by papillary thyroid carcinoma.
  • As other causes of neutrophilia and eosinophilia were excluded, we assumed that these were paraneoplastic manifestations induced by GM-csF produced by the thyroid tumor. the disease progressed rapidly, despite appropriate treatment which included thyroidectomy and postoperative radioactive (131)I administration. the patient died 11 months after diagnosis because of extensive lung metastasis.
  • Neutrophilia and eosinophilia were stable findings, while serum thyroglobulin levels remained elevated throughout the follow-up period. to our knowledge, this is the first report of a patient with metastatic papillary thyroid carcinoma in whom neutrophilia and eosinophilia associated with high circulating levels of GM-csF were detected.

  • [Title] [Correlation of DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit expression to radiosensitivity of non-small cell lung cancer cell lines].
  • BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: DNA-dependent protein kinase catalytic subunit (DNA-PKcs) plays an important role in repairing irradiation-induced DNA double-strand break (DSB), and affects the radiosensitivity of tissue cells.
  • This study was to detect the expression of DNA-PKcs in different non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines and evaluate its correlation to radiosensitivity.
  • METHODS: The content and activity of DNA-PKcs in five NSCLC cell lines A549, H1299, L78, PGCL3 and H460 were measured by Western blot and the DNA-PK activity assay.
  • Cell survival was analyzed using clonogenic formation assay.
  • RESULTS: The radiosensitivities of five NSCLC cell lines were different.
  • The values of survival fraction at 2 Gy (SF2) were 0.74 in A549 cells, 0.25 in H1299 cells, 0.21 in H460 cells, 0.48 in PGCL3 cells, and 0.58 in L78 cells.
  • The protein levels of DNA-PKcs were 3.26+/-0.98 in A549 cells, 0.51+/-0.07 in L78 cells, 0.51+/-0.11 in H1299 cells, 0.86+/-0.23 in H460 cells, and 2.60+/-0.76 in PGCL3 cells.
  • The activity values of DNA-PKcs were 8.30+/-1.03 in A549 cells, 2.45+/-0.52 in H1299 cells, 0.11+/-0.02 in H460 cells, 4.13+/-0.87 in PGCL3 cells, and 0.42+/-0.07 in L78 cells.
  • In adenocarcinoma and large cell carcinoma cell lines, SF2 were correlated to DNA-PKcs content (P<0.05, r=0.95) and activity (P=0.03, r=0.98).
  • CONCLUSION: DNA-PKcs is an important factor to predict the radiosensitivity in adenocarcinoma and large cell lung cancer cell lines.

  • A 37-year-old man was admitted to our hospital because of suspicion of the lung cancer in November 2003.
  • Transbronchial tumor biopsy revealed a small number of tumor cells with rhabdoid features, which had eosinophilic cytoplasmic globules.
  • However, a definitive histological diagnosis was not obtained.
  • We considered that a diagnosis of lung malignant tumor was likely according to the findings of chest CT scan and pathology.
  • Immunohistologic staining of the cervical lymph node showed that rhabdoid cells were positive for epithelial membrane antigen (EMA), vimentin, and anticytokeratin antibody (CAM5.2), but not for thyroid transcription factor-1 (TTF-1).
  • From the autopsy findings and clinical course, he was finally diagnosed with large cell carcinoma of the lung with rhabdoid phenotype.
  • Because of its aggressive clinical course, early diagnosis and decision on therapy would be very important for this disease.

  • [Title] An immunohistochemical profile of giant cell carcinoma of the larynx.
  • OBJECTIVE: This report describes a case of a 62-year-old male with giant cell carcinoma of the larynx that presented as a neck mass and hoarseness.
  • Microscopical examination showed that the tumor was composed of solid masses of anaplastic small cells with hyperchromatic nuclei.
  • There were multinucleated giant cells with huge nuclei, prominent nucleoli, and clear or eosinophylic cytoplasm.
  • The diagnosis of giant cell carcinoma of the larynx was made.
  • CONCLUSION: Giant cell carcinoma of the larynx is an extremely rare tumor the origin of which is not clearly understood.
  • It is believed to be the counterpart of giant cell carcinoma of the lung in larynx.
  • In conclusion, giant cell carcinoma of the larynx is confirmed to be a specific entity of simple epithelial origin and it is the counterpart of giant cell carcinoma of the lung.
